Nov 20, 2013 – Femi Fani Kayode Defends The Yoruba People On Facebook “We’re A Nation Not A Tribe”

Former Nigeria’s Aviation Minister Chief Femi Fani Kayode took to his Facebook page few hours ago to defend his people as we look forward to 2015 Presidential election in Nigeria.

To avoid tribalism label, he didn’t mention any other tribe in his Facebook comment rather he took his time to defend the Yoruba people in every statement he made.

Read what FFK wrote on Facebook today:

‘At the end of the day whatever happens in 2015 the only thing that is important to me is that the yoruba nation is in a position to defend itself in the event of any hostilities from any quarter. We are a nation, not a tribe and we will not allow any other nationality to claim our land or to lord it over us. That will never be allowed to happen again. Either Nigeria must be restructured or Nigeria… shall break.

    Finally no nationality that has a pathological hatred for the Yoruba will ever lead or rule Nigeria again and neither will they be allowed to live amongst us peacefully. That much I know- if you hate us, you better forget ruling from the centre and stick to your zones and states and you better leave our territory and relocate back to your state of origin.

    This matter will finally be settled once and for all in 2015. Nigeria will be 100 years old as from next year. It is time for us to finally decide whether we still want to remain together or go our separate ways”.

If Yoruba nation comes into existence, Femi Fani Kayode should be made the President….. He has so much love for his people.

    Femi fani kayode stop this tribal politics. No tribe in Nigeria is at war with the yorubas So stop creating imaginary enemies for yoruba people. You are free to fight any tribe or persons but dont drag yoruba to it. If you want to be yoruba there is a better means to realize your dream.

    The idiot @50 is a pathological FFk(fool)…He has been so unrelentless in childishly pouring out this unsolicited aspertions on the IGBO tribe,This he has being doing in all the print media.
    He’s so much apprehensive&frenzied that a particular tribe(Igbo) is about taking over his purported father’s land(lagos-a widely acknowledged no man’s land) from him.believe u me,it can only take a divine intervention from above 4 me 2 blive that this man is sane.
    *****censored abuse words***** .stop playing this tribal card man..pls grow up!

      Barr. Ike Nwosu pls; Femi Fani Kayode never mentioned any tribe in his facebook postings so why do you try to measure your head with the cap.How did you just concluded the cap fits the head of a particular tribe from a section of a country notorious and responsible for all the bad, bad, bad, bad images that the nation Nigeria has attracted all over the world.

      Mr Nwosu you don’t need to conjecture issues that very surely has nothing to do with your tribe except Femi’s descriptions are the true reflections of your tribe’s hatred for the Yorubas. No wonder the likes of you keep refering to Lagos as no man’s land. There will be nothing wrong if you consulidate your co-ownership of Lagos by adding ‘Awori Omo Onile’ to your Ike Nwosu name. Isn’t it sad for a people to denounce their ancestral roots for reasons of less developmets to shamelessly contest someone else territory and even by doingso choose do develop deeprooted hatred for your host tribe.

      Every part of the nation Nigeria has its ancestral settlers including South Eastern zones which no one is contesting with the Easterners ie. Igbo tribe, The Hausa people have lived in Lagos for as long as Nigeria existed but have never disputed the ownership of Lagos because the Hausa man is very very proud of where he comes from and despite the limitations and difficulties confronting the hinterland north, the Hausa man has developed his territory to the extent of their ability. Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory is the only statutorilly recognised ‘No man’s Land’ in Nigeria and even that, the indigenous Gwari tribe still are fighting for recognition in the sceam of Abuja developmental programme.

      My advice to you Mr Barr Ike Nwosu is to rally your compatriots, this lucky generation of yours to inbibe some partriotism, love for your ancestral Eastern homeland and develop the place for your unborn generation to inherit so that they could avoid the kind of humilations that this your generations continue to suffer everywhere. A piece of lesson to you if you care to learn; The Yoruba people this weekend will be celebrating 200 years of their settlement in Gold Coast in 1813, now Ghana, several decades before the amalgamations of Nigeria, Yorubas have investments and properties in the heart of the Ghanaian capital city and other major cities that dates back to the 1813s, yet have lived in harmony with their host community for decades and have produced generations after generations. Not even when Ghana recognised the Yoruba tribe as a non indigenous Ghanaian tribes among other tribes with similar migration records, did Yoruba ever tried to lay claim to any part of Ghana. So a piece of lesson to Mr Ike Nwosu and his likes to be proud of where they belong. The Igbo Land.

        This is a very good piece of write up.Highly educative and informative for the ignorant ibos to learn to develop their confused history and ancestral land.Anywhere they go they like to lay claims to other peoples land. Even to the extent laying claim to Goa in India.The Indians are smoking them out now like rats inside holes.Unfortunately they are address as’ Nigerians” putting muds on we other tribes as been reffered to as cancer to any society you find Nigerians. I think Fani Kayode is raising an important issue of Yoruba nation-hood, And all Yorubas should rally round him to make this truth be established. Infact this ibo of a tribe had rubbished the name Nigeria and it’s hour for Yoruba to move towards distinctiveness.May God bless Fani-Kayode and others on this leadership vision .

      My IGBO brother I am a Yoruba man, I can not see what you have said unless I missed something, that would have prompted OMO BABA to reply with such a tyriad. I think we in Nigeria have mad many mistatkes since and before independence that does not allow any one of us to be boastful. But I for one AGREE with your sentiment for us to fucking grow up. There is a real issue at stake for us as a nation…I too think that the Hausa man is more different than any peoples of the south, however the thing that all Nigerians seem to agree with where all tribes are cncerend is that the Hausa man in general is more trustworthy than the peoples of any southern clan. Why are we still whollowing, we have been blessed with everything..yet no Nigerian exept those in the east, not just te Igbos seem to give a dam at what is so painfully obvious, which is the land from which our wealth resides and os the life blood of the nation is a complete pit! how is it that no Yoruba man is championing this cause.

      Insults and abuses is the trade in stock of the Igbo people, you can’t just address issues based on facts. Jizzy Jizzy why don’t you relocate to the East where you belong, where no Femi Fani Kayodes will question your right of indigenship. Jizzy Jizzy stop the attack on Femi Fani Kayode and put him to shame by considering a relocation to your Igbo land.

      During the nigeria civil war, Biafrans were busy fighting for their Sovereignty and yarubas were busy sending their children to england to study, today i keep woundering what happened to those of them that went to london to study, because all i see around are educated ****. you think you can claim the properties of the Ibos in lagos? hahhahaha. anyway good morning fani for waking up too late, because what you are seeing now, the Ibos saw it before ********

      CIA has sworn to divide nigeria come 2015, because of the oil money used in sponsoring boko haram by the northern leaders, but fani do not joke with the descendants of mennasah the son of Joseph and Joseph the son of Jacob. what we have is from God of Isreal, and we have it all over the world not only in lagos.

      • OMO BABA

        November 21, 2013 at 7:05 PM

        Responding to someone like you OBINNA is a diservice to oneself cos its very clear you lack any intellectual ability to interogate issues based on facts, hense your resort to insults. It is also very instructive to note you have never travelled beyond Nigeria; most likely Lagos. You spoke about Igbo properties in Lagos and how the Igbo man will not leave the properties behind for anybody. Ask your compatriots who junket around the globe to perpetrate heineous criminal activities about Asian investment in the UK, especially Indians and in particular properties and investments owned by Indians and their generational descendants in the heart of British Capital; London. Ask your Igbo brothers about Isrealis Jews properties and investments in the US, specifically New York City. These set of unique examples are British and American citizens without doubt but have never for reasons of their investments claimed ownership of London & New York City. They bend backward in recognition of their roots to influence policies that may affects their homeland negatively, that invlude even who rules America.

        My dear brother Obinna, the case of the Igbo race claiming other peoples lands for the mere reasons of economic migration and owining properties in their host communities has no examples with any tribe or race anywhere in the world. Unfortunately yours is a lost history and the earlier the Igbo race excercise an indept masterbation of what went wrong and how they arrived at this level of rejection everywhere they are domicile. I often time here the Igbo tribe raise an uninteligent argument of envy of their business successes wherever they live, but have never really interogated the real reasons people are cautious dealing with Igbo man or having him around you,? God in His wisdom has endowed all people everywhere with ability to live and survive within his enviroments and GOD has not deligated HIS responsibility to anybody, and the least the Igbo man whose ‘Self aclaimed success’ albeit is laid on the foundation of all manner of criminality.

        The Isrealis history of lost in wilderness is still fresh on the minds and the rescue and recreation of today’s Isreal by Western powers in 1943, after the holocaus is still fresh to relish. Unfortunately the Igbos claim to be descendants of Isreali Hebrew, but I wonder who will rescue them from wilderness they’ve found themselves if they don’t change their negative mentality and confront and address the problem of economic migrations.

    Yes o. Chief Femi Fani Kayode please help free the mind of my people by educating them about the difference between the blemish word ‘Tribe’ and ethnic or more so, Yoruba otherwise known as ‘Kaaro Oji’re’. Yes indeed, Yoruba a Nation with countless Kingdoms and our Paramount rulers; Ooni of Ife and Alaafin of Oyo occupy the seats that equal that of the Queen of England. Yoruba as a people has a rich culture second to none in the universe. Yoruba established the doctrine of laws that the Western scholars learned from before the European infidels came to destroy their kingdoms and empires. They invented Arithmetic, Money and Weapons of War. My readers please permit me to refer you to the following books: 1. Destruction of Black Civilization, 2. The Stolen Legacy, 3. Ancient African Inventions, 4. Early African History, 5. Early African Empires, 6. Early African Civilization and the list goes on. You can also Youtube this information. Mind is a terrible thing to waste. Let us emancipate ourselves from mental slavery by the means of real education. This is the only way we can know how to fight the battle of the mind. We must academically educate Nigerian Police to remove ‘Tribe’ from its case file with the word ‘Ethnic’ Nigerian police must stop the insult and abusive word imposed on Africa by the self centered British Colonial infidels. We are in 2013 not colonial era.

    Femi is serriously suffering from a mental illness called PARANOIA… The man is obviously disturbed.. Thats not love for ones tribe.
    If you read his recent articles, you cant help but to imagine why an educated man like Femi wont cease to talk like an illiterate man.
    And just like they say: Education is Not ENLIGHTENMENT…

    He has an unusual fear that someone will one day snatch yoruba land from him.. We all know that his fears are unfounded and spurious.. Thats just an incipient sign of PARANOIA….

    November 21, 2013 at 11:02 AM

    Omo Baba,

    You are very very right in your long comment, i respect you, although iam an Igbo man, where i disagree with you is where you said that my tribe brings bad name to Nigerian nation all over the world,Why?if my trbe bring bad name to nigeria, then we shold be clapping for the north, yes we should be claping for the north which rule the nation for 36 years without any good thing they produce than Boko Haram, looting of Nigerian wealth, introducing drugs deals by exporting and importing it by means of pilgrimage, what happens to Net, burning it so that fruad will not be exposed,what of banking frude, what happen to ITT?PLEASE THERE IS NO FAMILY THAT HAS NO BLACK GOAT, why hateing Igbos, after giving them 20 pounds no matter how many million they have in bank,still they start with it and grow big, who introduce 419 in Nigeria? what of fake credit cards?Please my brothers we should not be remembering old wounds,yorubas and Igbos are brothers, some may hate yourubas and some may like them as well as in igbos,

    My reason i said that you are right is based on my people igbos devoloping other people land and leave theirs, look at what they built in relief market, if a plots of land cost 100 million they will buy it in lagos and if you sell the same plot in any of the eastern state for 1 kobo, they will not buy it, i think this statement from FFk is an eye opening to most of igbos who refused to remember what happen to them during the war time.

    For me, i dont like living in Lagos what of me buying any properity there, iam not a trblist, rather i chose to be like that, yourubas are my brothers till tomorrow, i love them because the respect their culture, they are wise.had it been that what happened to igbos happened to them, you can not see any of them building even a batcher house in Lagos, NDI IGBO LOTANU BE UNU? COME BACK HOME AND USE YOUR GOD GIVEN SPRIT OF HARD WORKING AND DEVOLOP YOUR ZONE,BUILT THOSE INDUSTRIES IN EAST, TAKE LOOK AT ISREAL is our poplation not more than them?
    FFK thanks you.

      God bless you George, as a Yoruba man, I can see you are a peace maker…I feel that you are the type we need in Nigeria, not Haters that even if we have something to say to any other person we should use some decorum in doing so. I cry for Nigeria, it as if we have not been through enough striff in all our families that we should be bringing up matters that will only divide us. We all know but never admit how fortunate it is in real terms that Youribas Igbos Hausa are all those in between have been lumped in the area we call Nigeria…it is Gods doing not our own..the power we have in our collective hands is emmense beyond count yet we still suffer.

      I am in the diaspora, and all I see all over the world when I travel is Black people suffering, what I know about slavery and such is that most slaves came from our land, it stands to reason when you seee we are the most populas nation in Africa, and at the time of idependence there were less people in Nigeia that in the UK. i AM JUST HOPING WE CAN STILL RISE WITH SOME DIGNITY as a collective. We have an awfully long road ahead.

Is it fare that a whole Nation of 170 million inhabitants, boasting to be the Giant of Africa, can still be talking this kind of tripe. Femi Kayode, who has been educated to the hilt shows that he is just an arsehole. Its a shame, as I want to respect him but can not respect any kind of flame fanning that ill further holt Africans development. If Nigeria is the Giant of Africa, then it means we are the Giant of the Black world. Does this not mean we have a responsibility to all our brothers and sister, mostespecially those that are in our land. I wish Nigeria and its people would grow up!
